Couple was attacked, leaving woman having seizures

A homeless woman and her fiance were attacked and robbed late Friday, leaving the woman bleeding from the mouth and having seizures, a Lorain police report said.

Police said they found the woman about 8:45 p.m. lying unconscious on the side of East 29th Street. Her fiance, who was not wearing pants, ran toward the Haven Center on East 30th Street, where both live, the report said.

When the woman woke up, she was sobbing and claimed she couldn’t move on her own, the report said.

The woman told police she had walked to a pharmacy to fill a prescription when two men jumped her and her fiance.

The man later told police he had just cashed a check for $544 when the robbers jumped them, according to the report. He said he recognized them as the same men who robbed him last week.
The report said the man had a head wound but refused treatment.

The woman, who is epileptic, suffered from several seizures while being helped to an ambulance. She was taken to Community Regional Medical Center.
